building,the collection,the cafe all excellent.Friendly staff and helpful.
I popped in here towards the end of a busy day so didn’t really want to walk around for too long. Entrance was free. There are several collections here (paintings, sculptures, photographs) but the large circular room with the oil paintings was my favourite. It’s always nice to sit down and study the paintings at leisure. Shame then that a... More

Leeds Art Gallery always pleasant with a nice selection of regulars and different exhibitions (not always to my taste, but interesting!). However, the Tiled Hall café is great for a drink/cake or light lunch. Excellent choice of cakes, and savories, many a bit different from your average (e.g. unusual combinations for cakes and salads). Usually everything brilliant, but this last... More
Really enjoyed my trip to this gallery - it has an interesting range of modern art with a smaller selection of classics - all well displayed and with plenty of space to wander.
